With a combination of over 250 horses and 260 lb/ft of torque on tap, plus Mazda's incredible suspension and handling work, phenomenal transmission, and famously flawless ergonomics, this is the most fun car I've ever owned. Plus, it comfortably fits an infant car seat, a stroller, a full load of groceries, two dogs, and to 6ft adults at the same time, which is pretty incredible. All the usefulness of a 5-door with the no-compromises feel of a performance vehicle. It's everything I've ever wanted.
Simplified and perfect,
2013 Mazda Mazda3Emily Williams - Houston, TX01/30/2017
Mazdas have always been amazing cars to me. It doesn't have a lot of fancy features, but if you prefer simplicity and reliability over flash, this is the car you should get. Before this one, I had another Mazda 3 which was unfortunately totaled, but the side airbags deployed quickly and prevented me from getting seriously hurt. These cars have never given me any problems mechanically and continue to be reliable!
I am always so surprised at how well thought out the car is. I never find my self wishing something was easier to reach or use.
It really is just a nice car. Looks nice, feels nice, drives nice, great gas mileage with plenty of power. Will definitely be buying Mazda again.
